Me- Cormack's chair in the speak- er's private office. McCormack was'not present at the time, Life says. The Life article also describes several other alleged fixes and fix attempts involving both the iobbyist and McCofmack's sus- pended chief aide and claims "the evidence is that Mc- Cormack was more than naively involved in whatever took place in his office." life, in the article written by William Lambert to appear in the Oct. 31 edition, identifies the lobbyist and alleged fixer as Na- than Voloshen, a 71-year-old "purported lawyer in Maryland who is a close friend of the speaker." Targets Of SEC Both Voloshen and Dr. Martin Sweig, whom McCorroack sus- pended last week as his admin- istrative assistant, are currently Decision Expected In City Land Issue The clerk's office in Superior Court said it expected a decision In the Nevere'tt property-taking controversy to be handed down sometime this afternoon. Final arguments on the case were heard by Justice John W. King Oct. 15. At that time, law- yers in the case were told a deci- sion would be issued by no later than today. At issue is whether the contro- versial property-taking must be put on the Nov. 4 municipal bal- lot for voter approval as request- ed in a petition signed by more thin voters. Also contested is whether the petition is a true initiative peti- tion which can compel the alder- men to put the issue on the bal- lot and whether an initiative peti- tion is applicable in a land-taking case. Defending the aldermanic board in its shelving of the petition is City Solicitor Arthur 0. Gormley Jr- Aaron A. Harkaway represents Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan and the petitioners who brought the issue to court after the petition was shelved on the grounds it was not a true initiative petition.

(AP) Walter Peterson ad- vised Atty. Gen. George Pappagianis today he and the Executive Council wuld go to the New Hamp- shire Supreme Court for an advisory opinion if he again refuses to answer a question involving a tax dispute with Maine. To Seek Advice In the latest development In the clash between the Republi- can governor and Ihe Democra- tic attorney general, 'Peterson said the governor and council would seek the court's advice "as to our authority to ask the question of the attorney general and your responsibility to re- ply." Pappagianis has refused to give an official opinion on Ihe effect certain U.S. Supreme Court decisions might have on a suit challenging Maine's impo- sition of its income tax on the New Hampshire workers at the Portsmouth Naval Ship- yard. The attorney general has told the governor and council the shipyard is in Maine and that in his opinion as a lawyer but not as the attorney general Maine can levy the tax. But he has declined to give an ad- visory opinion as attorney gen- eral, contending it is not the duty of the governor and coun- cil to prosecute the case; it is a matter between the citizens affected and Maine. Pappagianis also accused the governor of using his legal counsel. Warren Hudman, to undermine the authority of attorney; general's ;officev Pap- pagianis said Rodman's posi- tion is unconstitutional and sug- gested the governor and council seek the state supreme court's opinion on whether the legal ad- viser's position is constitutional. Peterson said he has re- plied privately (o Pap'jagianis about the last four pages of his Oct. Jl letter, which included Ihe charges involving Rudman, "as I would to any other citi- zen who writes his governor." "I respect the attorney gen- eral's firm adherence to what he considers to be the letter of the Peterson said. "I will state for. the record only that I consider Mr. Pappagianis' charges about Mr. Rudman's role on my staff to be without foundation. I have every confi- dence in Mr. Rudman's right and ability to fulfill his respon- sibilities as my special counsel an assignment which is wide- ranging and involves such things as fiscal planning and counsel, and counsel on a varie- ty of matters as they involve my duties as the state's chief executive, but does not include the offering of legal advice which affects stale departments or the running of our state gov- ernment." 'Peterson said he thinks the communication should be "Ihe end of the matter" but Pappa- gianis is "at liberty" to take the matter further if he wishes. Continue To Disagree In his public letter to Pappa- gianis, Peterson said he and the council continue to disagree with the attorney general's con- clusion the case is not related to their official duties. He said it involves the inter- ests of New Hampshire citizens who "will suffer econo- mic loss if this tax is imposed. "If New Hampshire residents suffer economic loss, (hen the state of New Hampshire suffers economic he said. "Be-, cause of our responsibilities as the duly elected representatives of the people of this state, the council and I feel we cannot withdraw the question." Peterson noted that Pappagi- COV. WALTER PETERSON anis refused to answer the coun- cil's question on July 10, July 31, Aug. 12, Oct. 15 and Oct. 21. "While it would seem that five refusals are enough, the council and I are asking you, in your capacity as attorney general, once again to answer the question of whether or not the state of Maine can legally impose their slate income tax on New Hampshire, residents employed at the Portsmouth Naval Peterson wrote. Nixon, Thieu Reach Timetable On Pullout By SPENCER DAVIS WASHINGTON (AP) Asian diplomatic sources say there are strong indications a private understanding has been reached between President Nixon and South Vietnam President Nguy- .cn Van Thieu on a timetable for American, troops from Vietnam. sources say_Thieu has given assurances his 'do their best to replace'the bulk 'of'the force by the end Iwo major sets of circumstances influencing the pace of the pro- gram to .switching the battle burden to the South Vietnamese. Schedule Noted According to this schedule: the enemy maintains the present combat lull and if the Vietnamese forces get' quicker training, it may be possible for the United States to withdraw men at. the rate of a month. ihe enemy steps up at- tacks or: if there is a slowdown in the .training of Vietnamese forces, the withdrawal pace would be slowed. Given the continued lull and the swift training of South Viet- namese lighting men, Nixon could pull out a total Americans by the end of including the already, or- dered home. The Asian sources say it would be difficult for South Viet- nam to stick to the schedule- but the South Vietnamese are determined to do their best to meet the target. The sources report the prob- lem is not of figures but one o! good will to go. along with tha replacement policy. Assurances have been given here to the Nix-. on administration of the good will of the Vieta'am'ese govern- ment jn the present program. Cost Estimated at Billion U. S.

Responding to the possibility that the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese are positioning troops for a winter-spring cam- paign, U.S. B52s attacked ene- my staging areas 78 miles northwest of Saigon near tha Cambodian border and infiltra- tion corridors leading from Laos into the A Shau Valley west of Da Nang. U-S. reconnaissance palrols and Navy patrol boats screening infiltration routes near Saigon killed 50 enemy soldiers in half a dozen small skirmishes and reported one American killed. "There are definite indica- tions the enemy is preparing to resume his offensive one official source said. "The timing is uncertain. He is pre- paring to give himself the option cf launching a winter-spring campaisn, but whether he de- cides to launch one is another question." Meanwhile, the U.S. Com- mand pushed ahead with Vietnamization of the war and turned over to the South Viet- namese ISth Infantry Division the first major U.S. base re- leased in the 3rd Corps Area which includes Saigon. It is the sprawling Black Horse base camp 40 miles east of Saigon. It was the base for the U.S. llth Armored Cavalry Regiment un- til last June and since then has been the base for the U.S. Infantry Brigade.
